Daniel Craig posed for rare photos with his 30-year-old daughter Ella Loudon at the European premiere of his new movie Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. The highly anticipated Netflix movie was the closing night gala at the 2022 London Film Festival.

Loudon is the 54-year-old James Bond oldest child from his first marriage to Fiona Loudon. The couple divorced in 1994. Craig also has a daughter, born in 2018, with his current wife Rachel Weisz.

Ella Loudon is a model and has recently followed her famous father into acting, but she is only occasionally photographed with Craig. Loudon was one of only four people present at her father's secretive wedding to Weisz.

He told the PA news agency: “I just had so much fun on the first one and we got the chance to do it again, it was a no-brainer.”

The sequel will feature final on-screen appearances from Murder, She Wrote star Dame Angela, who died on Tuesday, alongside Steven Sondheim, who created musicals including Sweeney Todd and died in November last year.

Craig told PA: “Those wonderful, wonderful people played very small parts but really meaningful parts in our film, I couldn’t be prouder that it happened.”

Speaking about returning to playing a detective, he added: “I really liked the fact that he’s an enigma because ultimately, he’s there to solve the case, the less you know about him the better.
